The university's Diamond Jubilee 
celebration will be held along with 
Homecoming the weekend of Oct. 
18 - 20. 

According to general chairman 
Jack Sampson (MS 57) the 75th 
anniversary banquet is being 
planned for Friday, Oct. 18. The 
weekend will also include the in- 
dustrial education conference, tra- 
ditional Homecoming events and 
reunions for the classes of 1943, 
1958 and 1963. 

Also featured under the general 
theme of "Heritage and Horizon" 
will be special tribute to the uni- 
versity's oldest living graduate and 
events involving the city of Me- 
nomonie. 

Details of the entire Jubilee week- 
end will be included in the Summer 
Alumnus. 




If Merle Price comes, can the gradu- 
ates be far behind? As much a part of 
commencement as cap and gown, the 
dean last month coordinated Stout's 
largest graduation exercises. Eugene 
McPhee, director of Wisconsin State uni- 
versities, spoke to the nearly 410 grad- 
uates.

California Educator, Home Economist 
Selected for Highest Alumni Honors 



The highest honor which can be 
given a Stout alumnus was be- 
stowed upon Howard A. Campion 
(Dip 14) and Karen Fladoes (Dip 
12) during commencement exercis- 
es here May 31. 

Campion is a prominent Cali- 
fornia educator and consultant. Miss 
Fladoes, whose career as a home 
economist took her to many parts 
of the country, now lives in Meno- 
monie where she is active in civic 
affairs. 

A native of Fairibault, Minn., 
Campion is presently a consultant 
in junior college administration and 
technical, vocational, adult and 
home study education in Los An- 
geles. He received his A.B, from 
UCLA and the M.A. and Ed.D. 
from USC. After teaching and dir- 
ecting vocational schools in Idaho 
and California, he became president 
of the Los Angeles Trade Tech jun- 
ior college in 1925. 

From 1932-59 he was assistant 



and then associate superintendent 
of the Los Angeles city schools, 

Miss Fladoes has had extensive 
home service experience, beginning 
with her appointment to the Betty 
Crocker field service staff in 1918 
("I pushed a Model T through 
North and South Carolina and 
Georgia teaching cooking school") 
and culminated by her position as 
director of the home economics de- 
partment of the Kelvinator division 
of American Motors. 



Alumni director Lloyd Trent 
is semiconscious in critical con- 
dition in room C549, Univer- 
sity of Minnesota hospital, 
Minneapolis, following- a severe 
head injury suffered in an ac- 
cident May 11 in St. Cloud, 
Minn. Brain surgery to re- 
move a blood clot was success- 
ful but pneumonia has pre- 
vented further tests. Details 
of the accident remain un- 
known.

Screening Committee Chosen to Head 
Search for Home Ec Dean Candidates 



Whither home economics at 
Stout? 

This question, reflected in com- 
ments and notes from alumnae after 
the anouncement of Dean Agnes 
Ronaldson's resignation this spring, 
is being considered actively and 
seriously on campus these days. 

In May a six-member screening 
committee was appointed with the 
responsibility of establishing criteria 
to be used in the search for and 
presentation of candidates for the 
home economics deanship. 

Four of the six members are home 
economics oriented; the remainder 
represent other segments of the uni- 
versity. According to Wesley S. 
Sommers, special assistant to the 
president who was appointed ad- 
ministrator of tlie school of home 
economics in February, all were 
chosen on the basis of their know- 
ledge of national home economics 
trends and current developments 
in the field. 

Earlier, Helen G. Canoyer, dean 
of the New York College of Home 
Economics, Cornell university, made 
a two-day visit to the campus at the 
request of Pres. Micheels. 

At Dean Canoyers specific re- 
quest, she met with representative 
groups of home economics students 
in addition to faculty and admin- 
istrators, 

Sommers said the observations 
and recommendations resulting 
from her visit will provide "con- 
siderable assistance" to the admin- 
istrators in planning for the school's 
future. 

Sommers also said tire President's 
invitation of this nationally-known 
home economics administrator to 
the campus was "visible evidence of 
his (the President's) concern with 
the whole area of home economics." 
In answer to reported comments 
by a few alumnae who questioned 
whether a man should be directing 
the home economics area, the Pre- 
sident noted that Sommers has been 
very active in the area of manage- 
ment problems and long-range plan- 
ning for the university and is in an 



excellent position to give continuity 
to the school's program as well as to 
evaluate directions and goals, 

Both the President and Sommers, 
in separate interviews, agreed that 
the ultimate choice of a dean will 
be the person who is found to be 
best qualified for the position whet- 
her man or woman, 



It Seems Like 
Only Yesterday . . . 

... but if it was really 1918 
when you graduated, you are 
invited to your 50th reunion 
here Monday, June 24. Special 
activities have been planned 
for you and your friends (or 
your husband or wife) from 
the classes of 1917 and 1919 
who will also be in campus. 



Four A lumnae of 1940 Recall Days 
Of Gracious Dining, 35 Cent Dinner 



(In the Winter Alumnus we 
printed a picture of 11 coeds and 
asked "Where Are They Now?" 
Five of them, all class of '40, re- 
plied.) 

"We lived in Tainter annex and 
ran across the field between for our 
meals. We'd send a scout first and 
if she didn't return with the warn- 
ing that Mrs. Dow was present, tire 
rest ran over in our robes." 

This is the recollection of Betty 
Smith Wheeler, of Racine, Wis., 
who added that "those were the 
days when everyone took time to 
eat properly." In that pre-war year, 
there was only room for 100 . girls 
in the dormitories; dinner in a pri- 
vate home cost 35 cents. 

Married to Lawyer 

Married to a lawyer, Betty has a 
daughter preparing for college, is 
chairman of Racine's Day-Care com- 
mittee, active in numerous other 
civic groups and has a real estate 
brokers license. 

Ruth Goeres Rice is department 
head of the Port Clinton (Ohio) 
high school. She said she didn't feel 
a bit behind the times going back 
to teaching with the methods 
learned at Stout under Miss Malch 
and Miss Quilling. "I'm able," she 
wrote, "to give my practice teachers 
some of the advanced (even yet) 
Wisconsin methods." 

Surely one of the most active 
families in Black River Falls, Wis., 
must be that of Zella Mae Zoos 
Schlegel. The Schlegels, who farm 
560 acres near Melrose, have re- 
ceived many soil conservation 



awards. The family, with interests 
ranging from 4-H and mental 
health to horseback riding, creative 
dance and photography, includes 
five children from a fifth grade Cub 
Scout to a married daughter. 

Zella recalls tire Tainter hall din- 
ing room with its "fresh white table- 
cloths and freshly baked bread and 
pastries." 

Sidney, Montana is the home of 
Janet Johnson Redgren and her 
husband, a junior high math teach- 
er. A guidance counselor and 
former dean of girls in the Sidney 
senior high school, Janet is attend- 
ing Stout summer session now. Her 
son, Jack, is studying physical 
therapy at the Mayo clinic and her 
daughter, Jill, teaches in the Durand 
(Wis.) high school. 

Madelyn Jones Contney has three 
children, lives at 10705 W. Wiscon- 
sin Ave., Wauwatosa. Her husband 
is with an auto dealership; she does 
part-time teaching. 

Stout Coffee Hour 
Arranged for Convo 

A coffee hour has been sche- 
duled for alumni and friends 
of Stout in conjunction with 
the American Home Econ- 
omics association's national 
convention in Minneapolis 
June 23-28. 

The social hour will begin at 
9:30 p.ira. Tuesday, June 25. 
The location, as yet undesig- 
nated, will be included in the 
convention program.

The 
Sweet 
$ight 



From the February evening when 
they met at Adams Castle, the 
Bloomfield Hills (Mich.) home of 
Harry and Marion Stevens, until 
the March alumni banquet in the 
Raleigh House, the Detroit Alumni 
worked, talked, phoned, mailed, 
cajoled and convinced their way to 
an eye-popping $15,000 contribu- 
tion to the Diamond Jubilee fund. 
Of this total, three donors became 
President's club members for giving 
$1000 or more, and 59 more joined 
the Century club for $100 or more 
donations. 

Harry Stevens (31) was campaign 
chairman — as well as unofficial or- 
ganization photographer — and to 
him go the picture credits for this 
page. 

John Furlong and Lloyd Trent 
were on hand, too, to offer moral 
support and congratulations from 
home base.

CCTV Set To Expand Boundaries 



Young Upstart Wins Campus Respect 



It started in 1962 with some mo- 
nitoring equipment and a $700 
hand-held camera and was consi- 
dered an interesting novelty on 
campus, 

Today it sprawls over most of die 
first floor of what used to be Cen- 
tral elementary school — and before 
that die "new" high school gym — 
with a quarter million dollars worth 
of cameras and equipment in its 
wake. There is a full-time faculty 
of four, three graduate assistants, 
15 students and a predicted enroll- 
ment jump for fall. 

Closed circuit television here has 
moved beyond the novelty stage 
into an innovative reality where to- 
day's ponderables are tomorrow's 
possibles. 

It is under die administration of 
the audio-visual communications 
department and chairman D. P. 
"Doc" Barnard (BS 46, MS 47). 
Synonomous with CCTV on campus 
is the name of Harry Herbert (MS 
64), the university's coordinator of 
televised instruction. Another alum- 
nus, Dave Beveridge (BS, MS 66), 
is the instructional systems engineer 
and was responsible for designing, 
ordering equipment for and super- 
vising the installation of the entire 
CCTV system both initially and in 
its present quarters. Staff producer- 
director is Patrick Haberman, a 
Mankato graduate. 

Opened in January, CCTV's new 
home includes the gym-sized main 
studio, master control studio, con- 
trol room, a multipurpose room, 
television graphics area, electronics 
repair and set construction shop and 
film editing room. 

CCTV transmits an average of 16 
hours of videotaped programs to 
classrooms each week on three chan- 
nels. 

In such areas as graphic arts, in- 
dustrial graphics, power technology 
(automotive mechanics), wood 
techniques, general shop and cloth- 
ing and textiles, instructors have be- 
come "actors."

Parents' Weekend is coming up and the President has to be off campus. What to do? 
No problem this spring. In the spacious main studio, graduate assistant-cameraman 
Bob Fuller "shot" Pres. Micheels and the videotaped results were successfully presented 
to hundreds of visiting parents. 




This $65,000 quadruplex videotape recorder, which will produce broadcast quality 
tape, was donated to Stout by the 3M Co. and is a major part of the master control room 
equipment,

A student's-eye view through the observation window provides a clear picture 
(with sound) of control room activities while keeping its owner from interfering with 
the program in progress. At left a "shader" balances picture tonal quality at the re- 
quest of student directors. In addition to one monitor for each camera, there is the line 
monitor which shows what is actually going out to viewers and a film preview monitor. 



continued from page 4 

Later, with several receivers in- 
stalled throughout the classroom, 
these videotaped demonstrations 
achieve a clarity impossible under 
the conventional "live" method in 
which large groups of students have 
to crowd around an instructor to 
learn a new procedure. 

"We learn right along with the 
students," said Paul Axelsen (BS 
50, MS 56), in discussing CCTV use 
in graphic arts here. "By watching 
the videotape along with the class, 
we're able to see where our instruc- 
tion can be improved."

This emphasis on quality has been 
stressed repeatedly by those who 
have used videotape in then classes. 
E. A. "Erv" Dennis, of graphic 
arts, added that the new approach 
will allow more students to be 
taught with less full-time staff, al- 
though this is a "secondary goal." 

New tills winter was the series of 
120 videotaped lessons in freshman 
math which are providing core in- 
struction now, will be equally good 
for other classes. The math depart- 
ment's Eino Maki played a major 
role in this area, Barnard said, An- 
other math instructor predicted the

Methods of enlarging, demonstrated here by Lloyd Whydotski (41) are picked up 
on the monitor. Televised instruction coordinator Harry Herbert, with arm raised, 
serves here as floor manager and next to him production director Pat Haberman mans 
one camera, a student the other. 



tapes may sometime be shown in 
dorm study areas. 

The ultimate in evaluations 
is the method known as "micro- 
teaching" employed by the Ameri- 
can Industry project. Here, using 
a two-camera videotaping technique 
developed at Stanford university, 
the would-be teacher presents his 
lesson, it is critiqued by the pro- 
fessor, revised, presented to a dif- 
ferent group, again videotaped and 
again critiqued. 

A portable videotaping unit not 
only "cans" presentations by campus 
guests for later classroom utilization, 
but is used during lyceums, concerts 
and lectures. Where standing room 
only once meant not only no seat 
but "no see," today program late- 
comers can be an arm's lengdi from 
the stage via monitors. 

What's ahead? An extension of 
the campus will begin this fall, Her- 
bert said, with the acquisition of a 
mobile unit. The fully equipped 
unit, with remote-control camera, 
will be capable of videotaping in 
schools and industrial concerns 
throughout the area. 

Even further boundary-stretching 
is anticipated by Barnard. He said 
the university hopes to provide the 
TV broadcast and production facili- 
ties for use in cooperation with 
WSU-River Falls, Eau Claire and 
the Rice Lake campus. This would 
serve west central Wisconsin as 
another outlet of the state's educa- 
tional television (ETV) system. 

Barnard envisions a cooperative 
effort which would involve many 
area public and vocational schools. 
Meanwhile, a proposal has been 
submitted for a new TV facility to 
be constructed just south of the pre- 
sent one.

The Stout Alumnus 



Sports . . . 



BY BILL HEIDEMANN 
SPORTS INFORMATION DIRECTOR 

The baseball picture for Stout 
this year was one of optimism. 
Coach Dwain Mintz lost a few 
players through graduation but has 
come up with some fine replace- 
ments. Mike Thompson, Vern John- 
son and Dennis Reese have been 
impressive on the pitching mound. 
Although hitting has been a con- 
tinuing problem and Stout was not 
expected to be a title contender, by 
May a good season finish looked like 
a probability. 



Coach Max Sparger and Iris track 
men have completed a successful 
indoor season, With some outstand- 
ing performances by freshmen, 
Stout was able to win three of its 
five meets and set several field house 
records. 

Although the weatherman did not 
cooperate with tire outdoor season, 
Stout was expected to place high 
in the conference. Among new re- 
cord-setters were Cal Glover in the 
shot put and Walter Tankins, 50 
yd. dash. 

With all of its lettermen return- 
ing, Stout had one of its finest ten- 
nis teams ever.
